The External World
HOW And WHAT We See?
All the information that we have about the external world is conveyed to us by our five senses.
We percieve this world as the real world.
* Taimur Abbas

Modern research points to a very different understanding, creating serious doubt about the "outside" world that we perceive with our senses.
Everything we percieve as external is perception in our minds.
Science tells us that we are not seeing reality but merely perceptions derived from the real external world.
Everything we perceive as external is only a response formed by electrical signals in our brain e.g the red of an apple, the hardness of wood.
But how can it be? This all looks so real?
Everything we see is just an image we are staring at produced in our brain.
We dont look at the original object but just its copy in our brain.
But however nonsensical it may sound,
THIS IS THE CONCLUSION WE ARE ALL FORCED TO MAKE!
This "External world", the world which we live in is shaped in our brain is only a response created in our brain by electrical signals.
We are never in contact with the original object in any way.
To clarify, let's consider some of our senses which provide us with all our information about the external world.
The outer ear picks up available sounds by the auricle and directs them to the middle ear.
The middle ear transmits the sound vibrations to the inner ear; which sends these vibrations to the brain by translating them into electrical signals.
You are never in contact with the original sound.
How we hear?
When the brain is analysed, it is seen that there is nothing in it but lipid and protein molecules, which also exist in other living organisms.
This means that within the "brain", there is nothing to observe the images, to constitute consciousness, or to form the being we call "myself".
It is clear that the being who sees, hears, and feels is a supra-material being.
Who is that sees, hears, feels, perceives and interprets the copies in the brain of the matter existing on the outside.
The intelligent beings that write and read these lines are not each a heap of atoms and molecules- and the chemical reactions between them-but a
In philosophy, the theory of materialism holds that all things are composed of material, and that all emergent phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material properties and interactions.

Ladies and Gentlemen
To sum it up!
It is impossible for us to reach the physical world outside our brain. Our brain confronts not the "originals" of the matter existing outside us, but rather copies formed inside our brain. At this point, we are misled to assume that these copies are instances of real matter outside us.
The world is inside you.
The voice forms inside the brain.
We can never come in contact with the real physical world
RITA CARTER EXPERIMENT:
As a result of artificial stimulations, a physical world as true and realistic as the
real one can be formed in our brain. Thus, a person may think that he is flying
an airplane, while he is actually sitting at home.
Science writer, Rita Carter, states in her book, Mapping The Mind, that
"there's no need for eyes to see" and describes at length an experiment carried out by scientists.
